I can't recommend this one highly enough. It won the Academy Award, so others obviously agree. If you haven't seen this, it just might tear your heart out. Wonderful hand drawn animation, a film that could only work in this medium.

"Alternative medicine" is a huge money game, so people failing against big pharma need to remember that the supplement peddlers are raking in the cash. Here's a nice guide to which supplements actually might do you some good (and the many others you're literally pissing away)

Wow, I've been away from G+ for a while. Looking really spiffy. Now I'll have to find something cool to post...

My Disney shelf continues to build. Scored Pig (guess they never named the character, he was in a lot of the early Mickey shorts) and a Pegleg Pete today. Vinylmation is just too addictive, I must stop now.

I remember the constant early refrain of phone salesmen about "iphone doesn't do Flash but Android does." Which isnt true with so many Android phones ditching Flash. It really is time to ditch the outmoded system. It's a decent animation platform but a lousy web delivery system. And its animation chops definitely decreased with the removal of inverse kinematics. 
Erika Trautman is the CEO of Rapt Media. Cassette tapes, 8-tracks, and … Flash. All three of these mediums need a player to work, and all three mediums are either dead or dying. ...

Turns out I can't change my default email address for my primary google account. I'm legally changing my name to Erik Niells, so if you're wondering what that weird change is in my name, it is intentional.

Sheldon is consistently funny and often thoughtful. This one has really struck a chord.

Nice to see this doing so well. An amazing movie and one I need to see again. Not even the terrible Demi Lovato version of Let It Go can tarnish this. 
There's no defrosting Frozen. This past weekend -- its sixth in nationwide release -- the Disney Animation Studios' Thanksgiving entry took in $19.6 million to place No. 1. That's the most earned by any film in its sixth weekend of release, outside of Avatar ($34.9) and Titanic ($25.2 million), not accounting for inflation.

I didn't realize there was a 1960s Winnie the Pooh show. This would have given me nightmares... creeeeeeepy!

A really pleasant experience to visit, both for purchasing and for maintenance. The maintenance waiting room is clean and comfortable, and there is a small quiet room with desks and connections for those who need to work while waiting. We've purchased our last three cars here, all from the very helpful and friendly (and funny) Nick Rhodes. We've found Hondas to be very reliable cars, and the Fit is an ideal city car... Howdy Honda is a great place to get one if you're in the Austin area.
